• Egypt Falls to Babylon Devotional

    Ezekiel 30

    Idolatrous pride led to Egypt’s attempt to thwart God’s will in raising up Nebuchadnezzar to discipline Judah, and our own pride can lead to us making decisions that are against the Lord’s revealed will. When this happens, we show that we have forgotten what God has done for us and how He has revealed Himself to us. It may take a great fall for us to come back to our senses. Would it not be far better to strive for humility and seek to advance the Lord’s kingdom, not our own? View Resource

  • Egypt Redeemed Devotional

    Isaiah 19:16–25

    Christ inaugurated the kingdom in His ministry, death, and resurrection, and now He rules to bring people from all nations into His kingdom as these earthly realms belong to Him. Augustine of Hippo comments, “The nations are Christ’s inheritance, and the ends of the earth are His possession.” We are to make this reality manifest as we share the gospel, fund missionary work, and strive to make the invisible kingdom of God visible in its fullness.

  • Egypt’s Judgment and Israel’s Salvation Devotional

    Jeremiah 46:13–28

    Past faithlessness on our part or the part of our ancestors does not mean that God cannot use us today. When we repent and trust in Him, the Lord can use what is otherwise ugly to create something beautiful and pleasing to Him for His glory. This is good news indeed, for it reminds us of His never-changing faithfulness to His people in every generation. Let us be faithful to His call this day no matter what we have done in years past.

  • The Exodus from Egypt Devotional

    Exodus 14

    Salvation is a gift wholly from the Lord from beginning to end. He accomplishes our redemption on the cross and gives us the faith to appropriate that redemption for ourselves. It can be easy to forget this truth, but we must always be clear that His work alone can redeem us. Let us take hold of this truth and remember that it is what sets biblical Christianity apart from all other religions. View Resource

  • God’s Son Is Called Devotional

    Matthew 2:13–15

    All of us who were once in sin were in slavery even if we had no earthly masters. Wickedness held sway over our every thought, decision, and action, but in Christ we have been rescued from this power and are now enabled to live before God’s face in a manner that pleases Him. Christ went into Egypt and was brought out to begin the work that redeemed us from sin, and we should pursue holiness in gratitude for this awesome grace. View Resource

  • The Land of Egypt Devotional

    Exodus 1:8–14

    Pharaoh’s oppression of Israel did not take God by surprise (Gen. 15:12–16), and so we should understand that the trials we encounter do not take Him by surprise either. The blessings of the Lord upon us may provoke others to jealousy and even a kind of persecution, but as He did with Egypt (Ex. 14:4), God will use such trouble to bring Himself glory. Even the most minor trials we face are opportunities for our Creator to be glorified. View Resource

  • Trouble in Egypt Devotional

    Jeremiah 44

    Matthew Henry comments on today’s passage: “God can find his people, with the visits of his grace, wherever they are; and, when his ministers are bound, yet the word of the Lord is not bound. The spirit of prophecy was not confined to the land of Israel.” The Lord acted in grace to continue speaking to his sinful people in Egypt, just as He continues to speak to us in Scripture when we have sinned. Yet that must not make us complacent, for we too will be disciplined if we do not heed His voice. View Resource
